A born and bred Texan, Creed Fisher has been unapologetically bringing old country back since his arrival to the music scene in 2016. As a self-proclaimed country music rebel, Fisher’s musical equation is relatively simple—good stories plus good riffs equal great music. You won’t find a ton of fringes here, but what you will find in Fisher’s music are plenty of songs to relate to and much to enjoy. Here are the 10 best Creed Fisher songs of all time.
10. If You Have the Right to Burn My Flag

9. Where the Whiskey Still Flows
No doubt that whiskey is a favorite subject matter in hundreds of country songs.

It’s the kind that you can have on repeat and never tire of. It’s sweet, memorable, and truly touching.
7. Old Enough to Know Better

It’s no wonder the song was voted Single of the Year in 1994 by both the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music.
